Perhaps it all began to go wrong when her parents named her after an insect. No matter the genesis of her behavior, Cricket is in deep trouble now. Earlier today, Athens police arrested 35 year old Cricket Darlene Kimbrough, originally from Red Bay, and charged her with human trafficking.
Investigators say Kimbrough was the madam to at least 14 men and women who traveled from motels to private parties to perform sex acts on cash paying punters. Kimbrough then took the money for herself and paid her workers in methamphetamine.
Cricket is also charged with possession of meth and marijuana. Previously convicted of theft and drug distribution, she remains in the Limestone County Jail this afternoon without bail and faces up to 20 years in prison.
